> Thanks for your patch, indeed Yahoo accounts fail since last week.
Yahoo! changed the protocol, purportedly to combat spam, and released
updated (but still out-of-date - they're for 4.5!) ymessenger clients
just at the last moment, but didn't do anything to help the other IM
The gaim folks picked up some info from the people who make Trillian
and it's possible to log on and message, but there may be problems logging
off - I haven't tried it.
> I hope this will get committed soon.
There needs to be much more testing, since 0.70 has some non-trivial
> Keep up the good work
Thanks, but what I did was the easy bit: hang out on #gaim on FreeNode and
do a trivial version update to the port. Credit goes to the port
